The 7th year of the Camogie Legends Tournament will take place in Na Fianna GAA club in Dublin on Saturday March 4th next. The tournament for past players who have retired from Intercounty Camogie is popular not only for the games but also for the social occasion it provides where old acquaintances are renewed.
9 teams will take part in the tournament this year, four in the Cup and 5 in the Shield Competition. Westmeath and Roscommon are entering teams for the first time this year.
The Legends Cup is named in honour of the late Biddy Phillips, Tipperary who was a National Referee and administrator who passed away in 2010. Biddy managed Tipperary camogie to their first senior title in 1999.
